Innovative Investment Report out now

Our new report ‘Innovative Investment (#SocialInvestCH) is out today – Tuesday 25 November.

The report argues that social investment should be used to fund Innovative and even untested housing schemes. This timely report comes at a time of growth in the Social Investment sector and of an increasing unaffordable housing market. Yes this may be a more risky proposition, but the report argues that using social finance for such projects can have a significant impact – helping those at the margins of both traditional and social housing provision.
